Squirel's home in the ground.

Squirel's home in the ground.

Red squirrels are common in the conifer forest, where seeds from the cones of jack pine provide lots of food. One squirrel built its home in an old stump.  Another burrowed a hole into the ground. In both cases, the pile of fresh wood cuttings and seed husks is a tell-tale sign that the holes are active.

Location: Burwash
